Glen Sather has given John Tortorella a late Christmas present, a new and shiny 24-year-old scorer with tons of potential. And John Tortorella gets to show off his shiny new toy tonight against the Canadiens.
Obviously while Wojtek Wolski will grab the main storyline, there's still a game to play for the Rangers. They are facing a very good and tough Canadiens team, and they obviously want a win.
Brandon Dubinsky, who was snubbed out of an All-Star appearance, might be playing with a chip on his shoulder for the rest of the year. While it's good that he gets some rest during All-Star weekend, it's unfortunate that he didn't get chosen though.
I for one, I'm sure Rangers fans will agree, can't wait to see how Wolski is utilized under John Tortorella, and I hope that he is paired with Gaborik so that he can get his game going as well.
The Rangers will be looking for their 26th win of the year. Expect Henrik Lundqvist to get the starting nod as well.
